It has been about 4 years since I have been back to Oxford. I am amazed in a bad economy how many new buildings. At this rate uptown will be all new in about 4 years.

I can imagine your surprise if you hadn't been back to campus in 4 years. Just off the top of my head some new things that were built are the Farmer School of Business, possibly the psychology building, Wendy's torn down, Cold stone and Qdoba torn down, Stewart Square was built, new Duboise in uptown location, UDF remodel, Kroger's remodel with gas station, new McDonalds. I'm sure I'm missing a ton of buildings.

I always have mixed emotions about uptown Oxford. It's becoming, IMHO too close to becoming one big apartment complex. I don't want there to be no uptown in the uptown.

But as much of the lack of an "uptown presence" is as much a result of big box stores as it is anything else.

I disagree, uptown becomes better with more students that live up there. It increases commerce, it helps the shops that are up there, and frankly it looks a lot better.

Some buildings uptown not only have income generated from 1st floor commerical tenants, but some have up to 40 students paying $4,500 to $5,000 a semester for rent on the upper floors
